"Site Administration" > "Notifications" where you should follow the on screen instructions.
Plagiarism plugins also need to be enabled before this plugin can be used. You can do this by going to
"Site Administration" > "Advanced Features" and ticking the "Enable plagiarism plugins" box before saving.
The Plagiarism Plugin will inherit connection settings from the turnitintooltwo module, but you can set default values and whether the plugin is enabled within Moodle modules by going to
"Site Administration" > "Plugins" > "Plagiarism prevention" > "Turnitin plagiarism plugin".
